Prop. 56 - New Vape Tax for California is now in effect

Posted by VS on

What is California Proposition 56 Tobacco Tax Now in Effect

California Proposition 56 Tobacco Tax is in effect as of April 1st, 2017

On November 8, 2016, Californians voted to pass California Proposition 56. Proposition 56 was a ballot proposition that proposed to increase taxes on tobacco and "tobacco related products." The proposition was passed by voters on November 8th of 2016 with 8,980,448 votes with 64.43%. In 2016 the tobacco tax rate in California came out to California roughly $0.87 per pack of cigarettes. As of April 1st, 2017, that tax rate has risen to $2.87 per pack of 20 cigarettes or 27.30 percent of the wholesale cost of the product. At that time in 2016, the average state tax rate for tobacco was $1.65 per pack of cigarettes. A total of 34 states as well as D.C., had higher tobacco taxes than that of California's. Only fourteen states in 2016 had a lower tobacco tax rate than that of California's. In addition to state taxes, the federal government also levied an additional $1.01 tobacco tax in 2016 under.

What Products Does California Proposition 56 Tobacco Tax Effect?

California Proposition 56 affects tobacco and "tobacco related" products, including Hookahs, Electronic Cigarettes, Vape Pens, E Liquid and other vaping products, as well as products sold in combination with substances containing nicotine

In addition to a heightened tax on tobacco as well as "tobacco-related" products sold in California, any products sold in combination with substances that contains nicotine is also subject to the current tobacco tax rate. This tax rate ends up coming out to 27.30 percent of the wholesale cost of the product. Since this new state tax includes "tobacco-related" products, vape pens, electronic cigarettes, E Liquid and other vaping products will also be subject to this new state tax.
